GDPR – ISO27001 (General Data Protection Regulations) – What you need to know! – DOWNLOAD BROCHURE

The law – which came into effect on May 2018 – will also offer more power to citizens, in regards to what companies can do with their private data.

While the new law is beneficial on all sides, the GDPR has ostensibly been designed to protect consumers. These regulations are designed to protect customer data in the new digital environment, where companies such as Facebook and Google share the personal data of account holders in exchange for site access and features. GDPR seeks to return more control of the situation back to the user. This could make EU users less wary of sharing information on such platforms and GDPR should establish clear rules under which businesses can operate regards to the handling of customer data. With these new rules the boundaries should be easier to understand on both the corporate and consumer end, which should be easier for businesses to earn and hold the trust of customers.
